Excellent show, and a good sbd for '82. Great 1st set, and an even better 2nd set of course.

A very nice Half-Step>Franklin's opener.

Minglewood smokes, Jerry's playing in Peggy-O is gorgeous.

Cumberland Blues is one of the best I've heard from the '80s. Almost sounds like it's from the '70s!

The rest of the 1st set is very good too.

A hot Shakedown starts the 2nd set.

Samson rips, To Lay Me Down is amazing.

A very hot LIG.

He's Gone>TOO>Stella>Sugar Mags to close the 2nd set is excellent as well.

A very strong show from start to finish. One of many great shows in '82. '83 is when I start to lose interest.

i was at and remember this show well. a very quaint and intimate venue. the band seemed very comfortable and as you mention a great show!! one that i think has been mostly overlooked for the most part. i would even consider purchasing this one if it was available as an official release. everyone seemed very refreshed and recharged coming off that scorcher in Oklahoma!! a very nice setlist i do regret exiting before CJ.

I think this is one of the best shows from the early 80's. Someone - perhaps a reviewer of this show - wrote that '82 is an overlooked year, and I would agree.

Not much I can add. Jerry is on for this show and I love the el paso>cumberland. Nice combo.

Post space is beautiful with He's Gone>Other One>Stella Blue>Sugar Magnolia.

Take a listen to this one and then search through some other '82's you might be suprised.

I did not lost interest until after Brent passed. And with all due respect to Mr. Mydland - it did not have to do entirely with his death. I think '85 was the last great year the band had, despite Garcia's health.

I think there were tours when the boys were coasting on fumes from other years. But it seemed (with a few exceptions) that the 91-95 years were limped through.

That said I attended my last show in 90, and may have missed some things that others treasure.
